3 Ways Universal's Dark Universe Went Wrong

Imagine you’re sitting down to watch a Universal monster movie.

It’s summer blockbuster season, and Screen Junkies is taking advantage of it by bringing forth a series of Honest Trailers looking back at some of the biggest movies from years ago. First up on the docket is The Mummy. No, not the easy target starring Tom Cruise (they’ve already done that one).

‘The Invisible Man’ Remake Will Be Low Budget and “Edgy,” Lexi Alexander Pitched a ‘Mummy’ Reboot

Just last month, we learned Jason Blum and his über-successful Bluhouse Productions banner were tackling a remake of The Invisible Man, the first in what could be many revamps of Universal’s classic movie monsters. The Dark Universe that began with Tom Cruise’s The Mummy in 2017 is dead, which means they’re taking a whole new approach to some of horror’s most revered monsters. Producer Jason Blum has opened up about how The Invisible Man deal came about and teased a hopeful future for the rest ...

Dark Universe Architect Alex Kurtzman Says Making ‘The Mummy’ Was Just As Painful As Watching It

Like a freshly-turned vampire immediately stumbling out into the sun, Dark Universe died before it could really get started. Universal had hoped to launch their own cinematic universe based around their classic monsters, but the first entry – The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise – was a complete dud. Afterwards, future Dark Universe projects were put on hold, and it seems like the idea is – for the time being – dead and buried. Now, Alex Kurtzman, who oversaw the Dark Universe writers room and direct...

Vintage ‘The Mummy’ Poster Could Become the Most Valuable Movie Poster in the World

The Mummy and Dracula have been waging a decades-long battle, but not in Universal’s Dark Universe. The two classic monster films have been hashing it out over the title for most expensive movie poster in the world, and The Mummy may be coming back from the dead to reclaim that title.

The More Tom Cruise Runs, The Better His Movies Do, According to Science

  Did you know that if Tom Cruise stops running, he dies? Well not exactly, but if he runs less, his movies do worse at the box office. Really. It’s science. A study from the folks at Rotten Tomatoes have figured out that the amount that Cruise runs in his movies correlate with how good the movies are — and how well they do at the box office. It began as an internet meme pointing out, Tom Cruise sure does run in movies a lot, doesn’t he? But then the actor went on to put it in his Twitter bi...

2018 Razzies Beat a Dead Horse By Giving ‘The Emoji Movie’ Worst Picture & More Awards

Since 1981, the Golden Raspberry Awards, better known as the Razzies, have been leading the way in nominating movies they consider to be the worst of the worst Hollywood has to offer. After all this time, the joke has kind of run its course, especially when the Razzies simply pick easy targets and don’t really bring much to the table when it comes to discussing the quality of cinema. But it’s Oscar weekend, so the “winners” of the awards honoring the worst in cinema have been announced, and the...

The 2018 Razzie Nominations Are a Reminder That the Razzies Are Useless

Ugh, here we go. The “funny” Razzie Nominations have been announced, and as usual, they’re bad. Since 1981, the Golden Raspberry Awards have been leading the way in nominating movies they consider to be the worst of the worst Hollywood has to offer. These nominations are meant to be both tongue-in-cheek and “reward” bad films and bad performances, but often, they target movies that are misunderstood or simply bold. If anything, the nominations continually prove that the Razzies are kind of usel...

The 11 Most Disappointing Movies of 2017

When you look back at 2017, most of the movies weren’t what made history. Hollywood was rocked by a series of sexual harassment allegations, which led to the firings of Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose and others. That led to an important national dialogue about conduct in the workplace. TV once again […]
